Railfan Pictures of the Day - 08/03/2006

NS Harrisburg Line Wernersville PA July 22 2006

Brian's Model Trains hosted Railfan Day 2006 in Wernersville at the store on July 22 2006. Basically it was just a place to park so you could walk to various picture locations, with the former Reading Company Wernersville station the center of attention. The Conrail Historical Society and the Reading Society of Model Engineers had materials for sale, along with the Rockhill Trolley Museum. Tom Duke traveled from New Jersey to catch the action.
